I had the wonderful opportunity to chat with Zombified author Emily Walker and get a behind the scene look at what makes this indie author really tick.
Emily Walker loves creating worlds and stumbling around in them.
She writes under her name and the pen name Lyra Mcken. She is constantly losing her chap-stick, and has an obsession with the color pink.
Currently a resident of the mountains and loving the view she writes mostly paranormal fiction, and horror. Her small family consists of her red bearded other half, a rat terrier named Rebel, and a cat called Mr. Creepy.
